Last night we went to a friends house for dinner. He is a chef and makes us the most amazing dishes all the time. We rarely turn down invites to their house. He has been making some BBQ sauces and last night we tried a pineapple Jalapeno, a Black Cherry and a Coffee. Our favorite was the coffee Sauce that he tentatively names “Black Tar”. Being an awesome guy, he gave Brandon and I a bottle of it because we loved it so much. So last night I threw a roast in the crock pot and this is one of the recipe’s I made with it.
Erinn’s BBQ sauce is not for sale yet so you will have to use any BBQ sauce or follow the directions and just add your favorite BBQ sauce instead. Check out his blog for future Sauce and spice sales and great recipes.

One of the biggest issues I have is breakfast. On days that I am feeling great, I will get up and make an egg or some sausage or bacon. On days that I am (more…)
“How in the world did you get me to sign up for this?”, Brandon asked me all through training for his first running race. He is a swimmer and hated all things running. He was always my number 1 fan for runs. He was there […]
Last night was a beautiful warm evening and that always calls for seafood! Being from North East corner of Maryland (tip of the Chesapeake Bay), Brandon and I are seafood snobs. No one makes a crab cake like Woody’s crab cakes or my mom and […]
